Rosehill Theatre, Moresby, Whitehaven, Cumbria, CA28 6SE – Visit Now

Rosehill Theatre may be known as one of the UK’s smallest and most intimate theatres but it has played host to some of the great names from the world of theatre and music. Peggy Ashcroft, John Gielgud, Benjamin Britten and Nigel Kennedy have all performed on the Rosehill stage.

Rosehill Theatre, which has been described as a ‘rose-red silk lined jewel box, opened in 1959 and was designed by acclaimed stage, costume and film designer Oliver Messel.

Offering a varied arts and entertainment programme, the theatre occupies a truly exceptional setting on the hills above Whitehaven with stunning views over Solway Firth and inland to the Lake District.
